    So it seems like I have been working on this longer than Noah worked on the ark...ok...maybe not that long! It is finally done and the gilrs are moved in! The funny thing is, is that I critter prooded it (or so I thought) and the very next day we came to find a chipmunk inside the coop! I'm pretty sure I did'nt build it around him. Hole found...problem solved.

    Anyway, the run is 10'x6' and the coop is 4'x6'. We were going to paint it but thought it looked like a classic old barn. As I had mentioned before the first half of the build only cost us about $6...but the boy...fencing and roofing and extras really brought up the price pretty quick!

    Enjoy!

    Now its time to sit back/relax and watch the girls...oh and collect eggs!

    Thanks all for your help and answering any questions I had in the process!
